Welcome to the award-winning Guardhouse Café.
We offer superb, locally-sourced food and drink in one of the South Coast’s most stunning locations, Berry Head Nature Reserve, with panoramic views over the South Devon Coastline.
Only a short walk from the car park, our café is normally open daily from 9am to 4pm for coffee, tea, drinks, breakfast, snacks and lunch and is fully licensed.
We combine traditional café favourites for adults and kids with seasonal, local and adventurous specials.
We are used to dealing with all kinds of dietary needs. From coeliac to vegan diets please just ask us when we are taking your order – options should be available for everyone
Our little cafe sits in a national nature reserve, surrounded by sea on three sides, with rare wildlife on view every single day.
We have a duty to the Guardians of Berry Head and take many steps to play our part.
From time to time we love to host evening events at the Guardhouse. From quiz nights to themed restaurant evenings, and occasionally live music.
The Guardhouse Cafe is also available for private hire. The intimacy of the venue, combined with the beautiful surroundings offer a wonderful setting for any event.
